I made this recipe for my birthday last week since I rarely will ever make a dessert for myself and decided that my birthday was the perfect occasions to give myself a little treat.
Here is what you will need to make this recipe:
An 8x8 metal baking pan
1 cup soft whole wheat flour, freshly milled
1/4 cup cane juice crystals (or other low refined, organic sugar)
8 Tablespoons butter, cubed
1/16 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup cane juice crystals
2 Tablespoons soft whole wheat flour, freshly milled
Juice of 1 lemon
Grating of 1 lime rind
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
Organic powdered sugar for dusting
Start out by mixing 1 cup flour with the 1/4 cup sugar and butter. Mix until crumbly.
Next press the mixture into the metal pan and sprinkle the salt onto the pressed dough.
Bake at 350F for 10 minutes.
After 10 minutes, remove from oven and put in the refrigerator while you prep the filling.
Whisk the rest of the ingredients together in a bowl...
...and then pour over top of the cooled crust.
Bake again at 350F for another 15 to 20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let cool to room temperature, then dust with powdered sugar and put in the refrigerator. (Hint: These taste best if you can completely cool them for a good 4 hours...that is if you can leave them alone that long.)
